Places to find Angela Adams:
When the FBI brings Laura Roberts - a quiet, reserved bookkeeper - in for questioning regarding activities at the warehouse where she works, an uneasy Laura resigns her job - only to be attacked by thugs.
Chase Donovan intends to spend a few peaceful days on his boat getting his head together - and finds a woman being assaulted by two men who say his father told them to do it.
Chase doesn’t want to believe his father could hurt anyone. Laura doesn’t understand why she’s a target. Can they learn to work together to discover the truth - before someone dies?
Chase and Laura, traveling by his boat, are on the run from the men who kidnapped and tried to kill her.
“Hey, my sleepy first mate.” Chase grinned as Laura entered the wheelhouse.
Dusk skimmed the sky. Having glided Madre into the marina, Chase aimed for an empty spot along the dock.
“You slept all day. I thought you planned on sleeping all the way to the Chesapeake.” He focused on maneuvering Madre between two set boats.
“I did get up for a little while. You were asleep in the kitchen, so I went back to bed.”
“Galley,” he corrected.
“On a boat, it’s not a kitchen but a galley,” he replied with an easy smile. “If you’re gonna be a sailor, you have to know these things.”
“Gotcha.” Her lips twitched and she returned his grin.
She looked cozy wearing his sweats. The swelling around her eye area had eased, but the heavy bruises showed more profoundly.
Physically, Chase had always thought Laura a knockout. She generally wore her blond hair loose and flowing. Her green eyes kind of gleamed whenever she smiled. Their working environment was casual, yet Laura always wore a dress. Chase never seemed to mind. The woman had one fine set of legs and he had a hellva good time watching those limbs whenever she walked from her desk to the photocopier. They never talked much unless conversation was about the warehouse or the weather. Chase didn’t encourage otherwise. If he did, and decided her personality matched her looks, he might forget his rule about not dating women who worked for his father.

Thank you Angela for taking the time to answer some questions for me.
Thank you for inviting me, Kim.
So tell me, what inspired Magic Moment?
I had the idea for a hero who appeared to be self-centered, but was really caring and compassionate along with a heroine who brings his sensitive side to the surface.
What do you love about Chase Donovan and Laura Roberts?
I love how Chase cares about others. And, that Laura is all about family first.
What do you enjoy most about writing?
Creating my characters. I enjoy reading a scene and making a hero and heroine, who don’t actually exist, come alive.
When writing a book, what’s your favorite part? (The beginning, the first meeting, first kiss, getting to know each other, first love scene, big fight, HEA or something else?)
Heroine and hero getting to know each other is fun to write, but the most rewarding for me as a writer, and a reader, is the HEA (“happy ever after”).
When you aren’t writing, what do you like to do?
I am a huge baseball fan. I’m from Philadelphia, and the ballpark where the Philadelphia Phillies play is practically in my backyard. Often, since the radio and television are on a 15-20 second delay, I can hear the roar of the crowd and know that the Phillie at bat is about to hit a home run.
Oh wow. That sounds so cool. And last question….What’s next for you?
Along with celebrating “Magic Moment’s” first anniversary, I’ve been working on trying to turn a short story I wrote a few years ago into a novella. While “Magic Moment” was a romantic suspense and very sensual, this story is more on the “sweet” side.
I’m looking forward to hearing more about it in the future. Thank you Angela.
